Politics continues to play a major role in Tanzania’s diverse and vibrant media landscape. There have been increased incidences of the government banning, suspending or fining news outlets broadcasting content deemed critical of the government. This report looks at the Tanzanian media landscape along the five Media Viability indicators by DW Akademie. The findings suggest that media capture and the socioeconomic/political conditions in Tanzania influence media content, journalistic quality and robust public engagement.
